Thousands of Afghans are protesting outside of the Bagram Air Base today, after Afghans working inside the facility revealed that US military personnel were burning large numbers of Qurans at the base... 
A number of Afghan workers were also injured during the burning, when they realized that Qurans were being destroyed and attempted to pull them out of the fire, suffering serious burns.
